The adventure of Zip Lining is an exciting, heart racing one! There are several pieces of equipment that make it possible for you to fly across canyons and rivers. One of the most important features is the brake. But how does it work?
How does the braking system work?
Our zip lines have a guide-operated passive braking system, adjustable for each participant to ensure a smooth landing. As a participant you get to sit back and enjoy the ride, no hand braking required, but you are required to grab and hold a landing rope.
ZiplineX is the most popular zip lining tour in Washington and only 45 mins from Portland, Oregon. When they book their zip line tour they’ll be able to choose from our 8 zip lines and 8 aerial bridges. We also have a training course available to try out before going zip lining above the treetops. A ZiplineX gift certificate is a great gift way to start your zip line adventure. Check out our Zip Line Course.
